Carole Malone has argued that “anti-Brexit” are responsible for creating panic, which has led to fuel and food shortages in the UK. She accused Remainers of “whipping up hysteria” about disruption to the supply chain. Ms Malone engaged in a fierce verbal row with activist Femi Oluwole over the impact Britain’s departure from the European Union has had on the movement of goods between the bloc and the UK.
Speaking on Jeremy Vine on Five, Mr Oluwole argued: “Again we’ve made it less attractive for EU citizens to come here.
“We made it harder for them to come here to live here.
“We know that EU citizens make up 5 percent of the UK population, the 10 percent of our doctors. We know it was mathematically keeping the country alive.”
Ms Malone chipped in: “It is people like Femi, anti-Brexiteers, who are whipping up the hysteria both online and on television.
“Who are scared.”
Mr Oluwole then put his hands up and said: “I’m the reason. I’m sorry.
“It’s my fault. My fault.”
Ms Malone continued: “You use Brexit for your own ends.
“And it is because of the rabid anti-Brexiteeas who are putting out propaganda there all of the time that people get scared.”
The anti-Brexit activist said in response: “You are watching a lack of EU food in the UK.
Business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng has admitted the supply chain issues caused by the shortage of lorry drivers could last for months.
No.10 has put the army on standby and provided emergency measures to help ease supply issues.
There is plenty of fuel in the refineries, just problems with getting it to the petrol stations.
Fresh produce such as milk is also particularly badly affected.
Many believe that Britain is suffering more than most countries because of Brexit.
